      What does “Hip Healthy” mean?

      Close up of the Olives and Applesauce Olympia Baby Carrier highlighting the perfect ergonomic “m” seat on a newborn

      “Baby carriers cause hip dysplasia!” Most of us have heard this recently. What was an unfounded attack on narrow based carriers, has become an attack on all babywearing and a lot of scared parents who are just doing their best. It is time to end the hysteria and take a look at what is really going on. We have *zero* research that shows that baby wearing causes hip dysplasia.  Stick with me here, I’m about to throw some numbers at you... (All research for this post comes from the Hip Dysplasia Institute and PubMed, and will be linked at the bottom. Read it. Think about it. Talk to your pediatrician. And make the conclusion that is best for your baby.)

      But what does a baby ACTUALLY need?

      But what does a baby ACTUALLY need?
      Somehow you are supposed to know what brand of diapers will fit best and how many to get in each size. Or how many outfits to get in each size (and why does one brand's "3 Month" sleeper seem like the same size as another brand's "Newborn" sleeper?!). And that's not even the big purchases that one friend swore saved her sanity but another friend said was the biggest waste of money ever. Seriously, does your baby really need a $900 crib that doesn't even include a mattress? Don't other countries send new parents a box for their baby to sleep in? (Yes, they do. It's totally a thing!)

      Wearing Safely
